We Moved!

The Nashua DPHCS is undergoing a temporary building relocation to allow for renovation at our 18 Mulberry Street location, expected to take one year. During this time, staff have been relocated to the Landmark Building at 142 Main Street, Nashua, NH 03060. Our phone numbers and email addresses remain the same.

We continue to operate virtually and select services are available in-person. We recommend that you continue contacting us via phone or email if you are able. If you need to make an in-person appointment, please use the information provided below to contact the appropriate department.

If you make an appointment for a service at our building, you will be asked to complete our screening protocol upon arrival. To ensure the health and safety of our staff and clients, if you have a fever or answer yes to any of our screening questions, you will be asked to arrange for a COVID-19 test, quarantine, and return at a later date. Our staff will be practicing social distancing, wearing face coverings, and practicing proper hand hygiene. Our visitors will be asked to do the same.
